Timothy Tyson Killed in Jacksonville Motel Shooting; Security Lapse? (News 4 JAX)

Jacksonville, FL – January 29, 2019

Did negligent security contribute to this tragic Jacksonville motel shooting and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Tyson’s family?

LOCAL NEWS

52-year-old Timothy Tyrone Tyson was shot and killed outside a Jacksonville motel Tuesday afternoon, January 29, 2019.

According to The Florida Times-Union, officers were called “to [an] Inn just south of San Marco” shortly before 5 p.m. Mr. Tyson was discovered “in a rear parking lot next to a vehicle.” He was transported to the hospital, where he tragically succumbed to fatal injuries.

Jacksonville police told News 4 JAX, “the shooting was the result of an argument somewhere on the property of the motel.” Investigators are still searching for a suspect.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Motel guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the motel and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What security measures, such as guarded-entry, monitored surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Tyson at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the motel owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Timothy Tyrone Tyson’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss. 

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Did a safety code violation contribute to this tragic loss?

Local News

Apartment safety measures are under scrutiny following the tragic drowning of 5-year-old Ismaine Ahamat Assil at The Preserve at St. Nicholas swimming pool Thursday afternoon, March 1, 2018.

According to The Florida Times-Union, the young victim and his cousin were discovered by maintenance workers in “the pool at The Preserve at St. Nicholas” apartment complex around 4:30 p.m. The workers apparently performed CPR until emergency crews arrived, but these efforts were ultimately unsuccessful. The news report indicates that the young boy’s cousin was hospitalized and “is expected to be ok.”

First Coast News investigation reports and alleges that the complex “pool has been closed since 2016, shortly after the Department of Health cited the complex with three pool safety violations.” Despite this closure, residents report grave concerns that “children can squeeze through the bottom [of the fence] and get into the pool.”

Our Legal Take

Apartment residents and guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of safety provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • What steps were taken by the apartment complex owner to either improve swimming pool safety measures or empty and close the pool entirely, following media reports of alleged pool safety violations in 2016?
  • Have there been prior incidents of children gaining entry the closed pool and, if so, what additional security measures were taken by the apartment complex owner and management to protect these young residents? How did any such precautions fail?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the apartment complex owner and management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Ismaine Ahamat Assil may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death. Additionally, the second young victim of this tragic incident may pursue legal claims for her injuries.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.
